we're stuck with Eclipse 3.6.2 for now and need to enable SWT.MOZILLA as our browser on Windows for our plugin.
I have seen 32bit XULRunner able to do this on 32bit windows XP and bundled into a plugin.
Is it possible to compile a 64bit XULRunner for Windows?
How was this done for Eclipse 3.7.X on Windows?

Since mozilla.org does not create one of these, the support would have |
to be for a 64-bit XULRunner compiled from source. I know there's
someone out there that privately does this and publishes them, but I
don't know how well they work given that the original mozilla source
that they're built from is not expecting to run on Windows with 64-bit
pointers, and is not tested at the source. I also wonder how well
plug-ins would work in it given that IE is the only 64-bit browser that
they would be tested in.
That being said, this topic seems to be coming up more frequently lately
(2GB of addressable space isn't adequate anymore I guess). I would
suggest CC'ing yourself to the linked bug, and I will at least revisit
it (though no promises beyond that) sometime during this cycle.
